Phylogenetics of rust pathogens

There are about 7,000 rust species, some of which are among the most damaging of all plant pathogens. Using genome sequencing and transcriptome analysis, this project will contribut more...

Mycoviruses of rust pathogens

Most if not all rust species that have been studied to date carry mycovisues. The role of these hyperparasites is not understood at all. The project will undertake sequencing of myc more...

Development of dehydrated silage for export and domestic forage markets

The shortage of land for forage production for ruminants in many countries (e.g., Japan, Korea and China) makes the unit cost of most forages greater than that of grains. As a resul more...
